Owner description: Boutari is one of the most awarded and most historical companies of quality wine making in Greece. It was established in 1879 in Naoussa. Boutari winery Santorini was the first winery on the island to offer tours, tastings and art programs since 1990. Its dazzling white dome was voted as one of the 10 architectural wine wonders of the world. Santorini is a magical place for making wine. Our goal is to share with you our passion for top quality winemaking. We are open every day from 10:00 – 19:00 for wine-tastings, lunch and wine-shopping. We offer everyday 5 different Food and Wine experiences. It will be our pleasure to welcome you at our winery!

The winery itself is quite big, so it doesn’t get so crowded. We believe that the staff is polite and helpful. The wines were alright, but they didn’t intrigued your mind… we preferred the ones from the main land than the local ones. Pay a visit to taste, just to compare santorinian to main land varieties in the same time.

Our hotel coordinated us a private tour visit of the winery with wine tasting afterwards, and it was not worth the costs of 60 euro per person. The tour involved visiting the actual vineyards and the cellar which lasted less than 30 minutes. And the wine tasting involved only 4 wines....so definitely not worth the money, especially when our hostess came out just to pour our wine and left out of sight. Not very hospitable.

Dear Mariel,
Thank you for visiting our winery in Santorini.
Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience you experienced.
However, we would like to take this opportunity to explain the misunderstanding that occurred with your visit.
When you arrived at our winery, you were welcomed by the winery hostess. She explained that there was no reservation from your hotel made in your name. However, we asked if you would like to take a tour and tasting. Among the services we provide at our winery you chose the winetasting of 4 wines and the small tour. This service costs 15 euros per person, which was the amount you were charged in the end.
After your Trip Advisor review, we contacted your hotel and were informed that the reservation was made for a tour in another winery. Therefore we would suggest you contact your hotel directly to resolve this issue.
Once again, we are really sorry for this misunderstanding and would be more than happy to offer you a private tour next time you visit our winery, provided that you make a reservation with us.
Should you need any further assistance please let us know.

We were there for a drop in-tasting, and struggled a bit to find the entrance. When we got inside the staff seemed more interested in sitting in a room behind the counter and drinking wine themselves. One of them came out and poured my wine, one glass at a time, but she told me next to nothing about the wines, took a long time between the different wines (she was one if the people drinking in the back), and seemed more eager to get back to her own glass than to serve me. She didn't even bother thanking us when we left, or recognizing the fact that I left money for the wine (nothing for the "service") or saying goodbye. Very rude people. This was our first winery visit on the island, fortunately all of the others gave us a totally different impression, both in terms of service, passion for the job and quality of wine. The products at Boutari tasted like they weren't ready for bottling yet... I rate my wines between 1-5, and none of the Boutari ones got a higher score than 2,5...
Such a shame too, the tasting room is beautiful, and it is located in a spectacular place, so much potential....

This is a great place for a visit and to sample some great local wines but before the tastings make sure you do the short winery tour and learn about the local processes and the interesting way the vine grows on the ground due to the winds, then you get to do some tastings but there is a small cost involved. Lots of free parking or you can do a guided tour of all the wineries on the island.

We enjoyed our visit for a glass of wine but we're disappointed that you cannot have a wine tasting unless you go on the winery tour. It's 15 euro for the tasting and tour.
